Abstract: Prosocial behaviour is a type of positive social behaviour that provides many positive consequences for adolescents. The current research aims to describe the dimensionality of the prosocial tendencies on Minangkabau early adolescents and reveal differences in the prosocial tendencies on Minangkabau early adolescents for males and females. The paper-and-pencil measures of the PTM-R was completed by 671 Minangkabau early adolescents (48% male, 52% female; M age = 14.01 years). The findings revealed that in general the prosocial tendencies on Minangkabau early adolescents is high. Nonetheless, analysis of the types of prosocial tendencies revealed that prosocial tendencies of compliant, emotional, anonymous, and altruism are in the high category, respectively, and the prosocial tendencies of public and dire are in the low category, respectively. There are significant differences between prosocial tendencies of altruism, public, emotional, anonymous, and compliance for male and female, but not in dire prosocial tendencies. The public prosocial tendencies of male early adolescents is the only type that is better than female.
